This time last year, the Louisville Cardinals were gearing up to host No. 2 and eventual National Runner-Up North Carolina. A win over the Tarheels would’ve been the signature win that team needed. They had talent, leadership, and were widely considered as one of the most enjoyable Louisville teams to watch in recent memory. All they lacked was a marquee win.

It started with an aggressive drive capped off by a thunderous one-handed slam from senior grad-student transfer and crowd favorite Damion Lee. He’d finish with a game-high 24 points, and would lead the Cardinals to their recognition-earning win. The city, fans, and team expressed their elation all night and into the next morning. Then, everything changed.

Everybody wanted to talk about the lackluster performance (ha) by one of the top draft picks in this years NBA Draft. I want to talk about the proficiency that Damion Lee has exhibited in the NBA Summer league. Most people thought he would go to Miami and fade away, not me. I believe he has played his way onto the team and will have a long career. Here are some highlights via @UofLFanBase for you to see just what kind of work he has put in.

Comments from top Graduate Transfer Canyon Barry

Quote this from article:

Barry is hoping to duplicate the success of former Drexel guard Damion Lee, who left the Philadelphia school last March and transferred to Louisville. Lee led the CAA and Drexel in scoring during his junior season, averaging 21.4 points a game. Lee, a third-team All-ACC selection this past season, led the Cardinals in scoring, averaging 15.9 points a game.

Trey Lewis & Damion Lee Had Fun This Week At The Final 4

(via @KKCards)

(via @KKCards)

Although their team fell 89-85 in the Reese’s Senior All-Star game, Trey & Damion at least looked as if they were having a blast this week. Don’t think that means the tournament wasn’t on their minds because Trey made it clear that it was embedded deeply there. In multiple radio interviews Trey made it clear how he felt about our teams chances against the field. For the record, Damion finished with 6 points and 3 rebounds and Trey Lewis added 17 points and 4 assists in their last game in a Cardinal uniform. Here are some of the tweets that Trey and Damion sent out this week. It did however look like they had a little fun this weekend. Not as much as playing in the Final 4 but you know. Check it out and Enjoy!
